My headline says it all. My endocrinologist needs to read this book. This book gave me ESSENTIAL information that I need to have and haven't had for the 4 years since I was diagnosed with thyroid disease. I read this book in 3 days. It was so informative, interesting, and even compelling. If you have thyroid disease, please read this book. You will be happy you did.

I have suffered first from hyperthyroid and now from hypothyroid, and I have always been misdiangosed. I read this book, highlighted all the points I could never "say" for myself, because of the "brain fog" and showed them to my doctor. He kept my book for a week and read it himself. He has a greater understanding of the thyroid now as well!! This was a great book that will help anyone who may read it.

I think Mary has her heart in the right place when she wrote the Thyroid diet. However, as a patient who has an underactive thyroid for years, the book falls short on giving all the information that I need. For example, I just read the Perfect 10 Diet which addressed thyroid in more details, and had more information. For example, The thyroid Diet falls short from discussing the negative effect of a high protein diet such As atkins that I was following on thyroid or the role of Splenda that I also used. It is a good book, but falls short on giving all the right information for me to improve my thyroid or health.

It is not simply enough to introduce weight loss programs; Shomon also examines conditions, processing of food, metabolism, blood sugar, allergies, etc., in an easy to understand language. The book I just bought was published in 2004 and needs to be updated. Opinions currently differ on subjects such as basal temperature, test thresholds, etc. Numerous types of diets have come and gone since that time. The information provided, however, was still very helpful.

I got this book after been diagnosted with underactive Thyroid disorder. I was looking for something comprehensive, written by someone who seemed to be at least more knowledgable than this. This book was the standard diet vomit that is in every diet book you pick up. It didn't get into the compromises or real tips on what you should do about soy products and what you should supplement cruciferous with...this book left me very dissappointed.
